Category Contests

Are you liking these bundled books contests? I’m a total word-nerd, so the ideal of getting a cluster of brand-spanking-new books in the mail sounds like heaven, to me, but let me know if you’re tiring of my geekdom. Heh.

Today’s contest is a trio of books by author George Dawes Green; if you like mystery/thrillers, these books are for you. Five lucky Want Not readers will receive paperback versions of The Caveman’s Valentine and The Juror, plus a hardback of his latest novel, Ravens.

Want to win ’em? Of course you do! To enter, first go read the contest rules and regulations, then come back here and leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. Eastern (8:59 p.m. Pacific) on Wednesday, July 15th, 2009 to be entered. Five winners will be chosen at random, or possibly at knifepoint. (Probably just at random.)

Ready? Go!
